We disagreed on a debate resolution and I feel that this is the only way to resolve this issue. You can lay down 3 jokes per round. The first round is for acceptance only. Thank you!...

On balance, affirmative action in the United States is desirable

First round is for acceptance. No new arguments in the final round. "Affirmative action" refers to "policies that offer individuals affiliated with a beneficiary group a preference over others in competitions for employment, education, or other valued resources."...

Is art more important than science in the world?

Silver556

To me as far as I am concerned, art is not that important or needed in this world compared to science. Art is something that is needed for human entertainment. while science is needed to make the world a better place for others. We need people in the world that can help mankind, not people who can entertain others cause in the end it does not help the world in any way. Why do you think that there are fewer opportunities for people who are good at art compared to science? There are many jobs such...

Can photography be art?

YandereSpazz098

Salutations!I would like to debate weather or not photography can be an art. Photography can definitely be art, I will not how ever claim that all photography is art or that every photo taken is a peace of art. A creative photographer can create photos that show the world just as the way it is, or can distort reality. There is room for creativity in the framing, lighting, and in some cases the photographers editing of the shot. Art also often conveys beauty...

Money wasted on art works is absurd

lord_megatron
chrislee125

I get these jokes that people paid for invisible art and someone bought a blank canvas for a few million, and in another one a completely blue canvas for half a billion dollars. If this is not absurd, I don't know what it is. No semantics/trolling. No forfeiting. Violating these rules result in automatic victory of pro....

Pro will accept and argue that the square is indeed yellow.To make it clear for my opponent, this image was taken from Wikipedia:https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Yellow_Square.JPGThis is not a semantic argument where I will argue that the square is some hue in the...
